Affected Users of Linux loginservers

To deal with the ongoing abuse of science accounts for spam, we have disabled the possibility to send e-mail from the linux login servers. This means that the lilos cannot be used anymore to run mutt/alpine or as socksproxy for mail clients.

For users with cronjobs, note that cronjobs cannot send output via e-mail anymore. Please change your cronjobs to provide feedback in a different way or discuss an alternative solution with postmaster.

We expect this to be a permanent measure, at least for as long as we don’t have a multi-factor login on ssh login.

Update, sending e-mail is possible again, because lilo’s are not the only way to abuse login credentials.
